Thanks for the reply Deji.
I appreciate the link, i will try and wrap my head around it. I'm still a novice scripter and that looks pretty advanced for what i already know. Going to that link made me feel like i opened my learning book to chapter 30...i'm still on chapter 5. You know what i mean?
Though i understand what you mean by staying away from global variables, i'm still just in the process of understanding how a basic variable
timer can be displayed on a statusbar correctly
instead of a number countdown. Global or not, i just want to see how it's put together so i can understand it. Or if it is even possible in the first place, I have yet to see a working example of it though i'm still searching around. I don't really want to divert too far from what i am trying to learn (that's like putting more food on my plate than i can eat at this moment).
If someone could give me an example of this using 04F7 that would really help a lot..
It just amazes me how easy i can implement a variable 014E timer with a couple lines, though i didn't realize wanting to display the number countdown in a statusbar instead might actually end up being more complicated than the script i am making it for. I'm getting this feeling that my idea is faaaaaar from being simple. This post has been edited by sixace on Monday, Apr 30 2012, 22:50
